What’s the Upkeep on a 44,600-Square-Foot $15.75M Texas Mansion? (

There are mansions, estates, and compounds—and then there’s this megaranch in Brenham, TX, anchored by a nearly 50,000-square-foot home.

Nine bedrooms, 26 bathrooms, two indoor pools, two exercise centers, and five game rooms give you a sense of all it takes to clean, decorate, and keep up this massive home.

Other one-of-a-kind amenities include a saloon, an equestrian facility with a 19-stall horse barn, numerous covered cattle-working pens, seven ponds, eight wells, and a 10-car garage.

A home of this size can’t be handled by an owner with a bottle of Windex and a rag.

“You do need people, but some of the home’s infrastructure can make it easier to maintain,” says Diane Kiecke of Compass/Kiecke Becker Real Estate Group, who is co-listing the property with Jenny Becker, for $15,750,000.
